So 2012 hasn’t started off the greatest. First of all, the Badgers lost in the Rose Bowl. I won’t even get started on a rant about that. I’ve had at least 5 kitchen failures that I can think of and kind of gave up for a week after that. I tried to make bread a few times and some pretzel rolls, which were just a few that were among my kitchen disasters of the new year.
Maybe it’s just me or maybe it’s working with yeast? I don’t know. Then, I misplaced my camera charger… which means no way to take pictures with my fancy camera. To make matters worse, my house at school got robbed last week.
So dealing with that has not been fun. I honestly can’t even feel comfortable in this house yet because it feels so tainted. It’s an awful feeling to come into your house and realize that someone that you don’t know has been there and has gone through your things.
On a more serious note, how am I supposed to watch How I Met Your Mother on Mondays when I don’t have a TV?!? Kidding… kind of. Here’s to hoping that 2012 decides to be a little bit nicer to me! Want to know something nice about 2012 though? These muffins. They taste just like the cookie, but you can definitely eat them for breakfast. You can eat these at room temperature, but I’d suggest having them warmed up!
